Description

Some reports show the tail feathers as brown instead of red. The bird of paradise on a plain green flag was used by Papuasia at sport events in Australasia (I think for Commonwealth Games) prior of independence. Among many sources, I believe there is more information in Barraclough and Crampton 1981.

From the Flags of Paradise 1996 chart:

1962-1969: Australian Trust Territory: flag quite similar to the 1965 flag, but ratio is 1:2 and main feathers of the bird are brown.

I located the following video about the 1971 Pacific Games in Tahiti, French Polynesia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_XbvvAA5V4. It bears very interesting and flag-related information. Take a look on it specially the scenes regarding the athletes parade. The flags were proportioned about 1:2 or 3:5 and following a very South Pacific Games tradition some countries marched with two flags or pennants.

Two flags were used for Papua New Guinea (Papuasie-Ne Guinee): the current one adopted in 1971 and a green flag possibly that from 1965-1970. The bird depiction in the green flag, it appears, is quite smaller than the flag at the top of this page, but unfortunately the bird is not quite visible except for a glimpse during the torch relay. The other flag was plain green, just like that of the Libyan Araba Jamahiriya.
